Of course, when it comes to public school web pages, making content accessible to people with disabilities isn’t just a good idea, it’s the law. Section 508 requires public agencies to take steps to ensure that their online content is accessible to everyone (General Services Administration, n.d.). But accessibility should be more than just a compliance issue; educators should always look for opportunities to make their web-based content easy for everyone to understand.
